Three Stars means… 
Basically good cinematography, and with signs of using pleasing compositions. Sound appropriate and well balanced. Clear structure and planning. Appropriate pace. Acting good enough not to spoil the story. Flows reasonably well with few distractions. Overall the film lacks sparkle, but largely holds the viewer’s attention.
